Topic: Another Sliders fan: This forum has quite an amazing level of activity
First, I just wanted to say it's quite amazing that there are several topics that, from today alone, have recent posts in them, and it has a small but very dedicated user base, which is awesome. To contrast, even old but popular games on GameFAQs (like, Ocarina of Time popular) don't have the userbase anymore. For how unknown Sliders seems to be, it's quite shocking (in a good way!) to see this level of activity.
What is it about Sliders that brought everyone who still posts here together, and apparently in a communication or friendship that has lasted a while? As someone who is new to this forum (but who saw Sliders since she was 5) there is a lot of history to go through and I am not sure if I can absorb everything; any tips/recommended topics to read to catch up on? Is there anything new, either Indie or otherwise, in the Sliders universe?
I remember a long time ago seeing fan made trailers for stuff (one in particular was some Star Wars/Sliders crossover) that never made it off the ground.
I do also remember coming here a long time ago and watching The Exodus: Excised and finding it more enjoyable than what was shown on TV.
Personally, I grew up watching Sliders and vaguely only remembered The Guardian from Season 3 (this was when it first aired). I had a VHS tape where we recorded all the Season 2 episodes except As Time Goes By and Invasion, which I watched rather frequently growing up around 2000-2003, and it wouldn't be for almost a decade later that I would get a chance to see reruns and finally see Season 1, the end of Season 2, and Season 3 when I was old enough to actually follow the series properly. I honestly stopped watching at Season 4 (only really recall World Killer) and to this day there are episodes of Season 5 I have never seen because I just lost interest given the direction it was taking (same can be said for late Season 3, although with Double Cross, Dead Man Sliding, and The Guardian I would have thought Season 3 would have been amazing... but it wasn't).
Anyway, hello. How did everyone make it here?
